  • "I loveeeee this face wash!❤ I use this on a daily basis. It really scrubs any leftover makeup or dirty you might have in your pores. It leaves your face with a cool minty feeling. If you have sensitive skin you might want to try a tamer product, but if you are looking for a deep clean then this will do the job! You can find it at any local drugstore ( Walmart, target, dollar store, cvs, etc)" in 137 reviews

At first, this product worked really well and cleared my skin right up, but after a few continued days of use, it had me breaking out again. Maybe it shouldn't be used every day?

This is a little work horse. It cleans well without stripping my skin. I don’t think the charcoal works as well as other activated charcoal lines. But it’s a good skin care line.

Gentle on my skin and doesn't overly dry it out. Has sort of helped clear up my skin, definitely not as much as I was led to believe but still overall I'm happy with the product.

I really liked this product, being in school I stressed out and broke out a lot. I used this product I had bought at Walmart and it was a gentle cleanser and I loved it. I would definitely buy this again.

The acne clearing cleanser left my face feeling clean and refreshed. The cleanser does a great job removing stubborn makeup and really opening up your pores to get a deep clean.

I love this. I have really sensitive skin and this didn't make my face red or dry it out. This was my first time purchasing this product and I would definitely buy it again. Results show in about two weeks

I used this for the first time this past summer and fell in love with it! I have very oily skin and it eliminated the oils that built up on my face through the day! I will definitely buy that product over and over again!

The product is really strong but super fresh. It does minimize the appearance of the pores but doesn't erase them completely. You can buy it at Walmart or target . I love the fresh feeling after I use it

I bought this a week ago and my face is so clear. Buy this if you have really bad acne and breaks outs and it's awesome for pores. I'll give this a 10-10 this product is amazing I really recommend it.
I just started using this product and it started to burn a little bit and my face looks like a tomato; is it suppose to do that? Or is it because my skin isn’t use to it yet?
